But the important stuff I'm doing is trying not to spend too much time on (often pointless) work,
And taking every opportunity to travel outside the country. Much of the rest of the world is worth seeing, turns out.
Update: Only read TERRIBLE SCIENCE FICTION now.
Ong-Bak. Bruce Lee movies. Videodrome. Love and Death. Straw Dogs. The Conversation. Zero Effect. Waltz With Bashir. Brain Candy. Total Recall (80s). Blade Runner.
Kids in the Hall. Mystery Science Theater 3000. Arrested Development. Twin Peaks. Louie. Space Ghost: Coast To Coast. Archer. Seinfeld. Curb Your Enthusiasm. Cowboy Bebop. NO FAMILY GUY.
Elvis Costello. The Kinks. The Replacements. Talking Heads. Television. Velvet Underground. Robyn Hitchcock. Bowie. Brian Eno (a little). Cate Le Bon. Big Star. Joe Jackson. Frank Zappa. Townes Van Zandt. Fairport Convention. Captain Beefheart. Minutemen. The Stooges. Funkadelic. Bootsy Collins. Oingo Boingo. Cocteau Twins. Yo La Tengo.
Totally uneducated. Please help.
2. Pile of records I haven't listened to yet.
3. Good movie theaters where they treat you like an adult.
4. Decent coffee
5. Guitar (personal amusement)
Also: war, poverty, death, cancer, why everyone likes money so much.
It was great.
